The Three Stations of Fair Housing Spatial Strategy

The Three Stations of Fair Housing Spatial Strategy

(p.89) 4 The Three Stations of Fair Housing Spatial Strategy
The One-Way Street of Integration

Edward G. Goetz

Cornell University Press

This chapter contains the argument that fair housing advocates have adopted a spatial strategy of advocacy that has increasingly brought it into conflict with community development efforts. This chapter covers the period of time from passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 to the turn of the century. It highlights the key judicial decisions and public policies reflecting the debate between integration and community development. Initially the fair housing movement was most concerned with opening up exclusionary communities. From this position, the movement evolved to include efforts to limit affordable housing in communities of color to avoid the perpetuation of segregation. Finally, the movement has embraced efforts to demolish existing concentrations of low-cost housing as a means of breaking up communities of color. The evolution of the fair housing movement has, with each step, accentuated its conflicts with the community development movement.
